and hfautiful Island; an<l tlu' Islander's "(".anion of

I'rinn- Kdward Island to-day as wlii-n tlu\ wire first 
l)estowe<l on this province siirroiindtd l>\' the sea. 

Originally ()art of l-Vench Canada, the island (t-ded 
to the Ikitish in 1764 Chaniplain had railed it I. He St. 
Jean, anil it retained this name in the Kreni h and I'.nnlish 
iorni until 1800, when it was ni\en its present desi^'nalioii 
in honour of Kdward Duke of Kent, the father of (Jueeii 
X'irtoria. Its early settleiwnt 
Ity the British (".overninenl 
was far from satisfactorv'. 
They parcelled out praetirally 
the whole island in land Krants 
to oftieers and others, who 
in their turn made certain 
Kuaraiitees, which, however, 
were not carried out, with 
the result that for more than a 
centur>- the settlers were 
tenants of absentee landlords, 
with all the evils and discom- 
forts that form of land tenure 
implies. It was not until after 
the island became a part of 
the Dominion of Can ida 
that .he land passed into the 
tenant's possession as freehold. 

Situated in the C.ulf of 
St. Lawrence, Prince Kdward 
Island is sepirated from the 
shores of New Brunswick and 
Xova Scotia by the Strait 
of Northumberland. At its 

widest, the Strait is over thirty miles from shore to shore, 
but at Borden on the Island and Cape Tormentine on the 
mainland — two points which in their relation to the 
establishment of the new car ferry service are {)laying 
an important part in the transportation question of 
this portion of Canada — the distance i.s cmly nine miles. 
From tip to tip, the island is one hundred and thirty miles, 
while the width varies from two to thirty miles. The 
surfac? is gently undulating. There are no mountains and 
no forests to speak of, but the lack of forests does not mean 
that the country is bare; for copses and clumps of trees are 
visible on every hand, giving a charming variety to the 
agricultural scene, and wild bits of woodland are still to be 
found. The stately elm and sturdv oak, the white-barked 
delicate birch, the slender Lombardy poplar, and the dark 
conical spruce, each stamps its characteiistics on the land- 
scape, while the reddish hue of the soil makes a charming 
contrast with the vivid green of vegetation. 

The "Island" as its people love to call it— for where 
else in all America can be found its duplicate — is in summer

The north shore of the 
Island has a character of its 
own. For many miles high 
saml-diines act as a harrier to 
the sea. This, cond)ined with

The summer climate is 

perfwt. Singularly free from 

extremt's, the days are never 

hot and the nights are always c(X)l; while the glorious fresh 

air, excellent food and a good a[)petite induced by the 

breath of the sea, ar.' factors in creating a happy frame 

of mind and a comfortable bodily state. 

The Island has nearly .?()() miles of railway operated as 
part of the Canadian National Railw ays under the name 
of Prince Edward Island Railway. The highways have a 
reputation for general excellence, and the map in- 
cluded m this folder demonstrates the ease with which 
any part of the Island may be reached. A driving tour 
of the island is one of the most pleasant ex|)eriences 
and an enjoyable means of thoroughly appreciating its 
many attractions. 

Accommod-ition for summer visitors is provided by 
numerous hotels, bungalows, private homes and farm 
houses at reasonable rates. The hospitality of the Islanders 
is proverbial. There is an absence of conventionalities and 
the perfectly natural life that may Iw led is not the least 
of the charms of the "Garden of theClulf. ' Assuredly the 
Island is an ideal spot for a summer sojourn. 

Island— A Million- Acre Farm 


Riiitico Beach 

("liarlottetowii, tlu' capital and a cdiu- 
nu-rtial iTtUri- of thi- island, has a 
population of al /Ut 12,500. It has a 
fine harbour, ojK'ning in'o Ilillsl)or()ii),h Bay. When st'in 
from the water the city p'-esents an attractive appearance, 
built as it is on land wlrch has a height of about fifty feet 
almve the tide near the suore, and rises to three times that 
height at the rear of the city. A closer acquaintance with 
the city confinns the g(KKl impnssion formed of it. It is 
well laid out, and ihe streets are of a generous width, with 
an abundance of shade trees. There are a numln'r of 
imposing public buildings, and much taste is shown in the 
private residences and their surroundings. Several of the 
churches are handsome structures, and the new Catholic 
Cathedral is considered one of the finest sixcimens of 
architecture south of the City of Quebec. Queen S(iuare, 
while in the business part of the city, is practically a public 
garden tastefully designed and kepi in excellent order. 
Substantial business blocks are grouped along the sides of 
the square, and here also are the post office, court house, 
old province building and thf market house, the latter 
being a place well worth a visit on the regular market days. 
Among the institutions of learning in and around the 
city are Prince of Wales College and St. Dunstan's 

Victoria Park, the natural beauties of which have Ix-en 
preserve*!, is convenient to the city, and is reached by a 
lieautiful driveway which skirts a portion of the harbour, 
passing what was formerly the Government House, now 
being used as part of a Soldiers' Convalescent Home, and 
old Von VAv,\. d. At this end of the city are some e.\celleni 
bathing places, and ihe water is of an agreeable tempera- 

ture throughout the summer. The golf links at vedere 
haxt- a reputation whi<h has reached tar U-yond the con- 
fines of the islan<l, 

There isnnich that i-^ of interest in the immedi.ite vicin-

The town of Summerside is second in point 
Sir,?iinersjile of population. It has excellent stores, 
handsome residences, and much to attract 
thesuinmer\isitor. From a hill in the of Summerside is 
a glorious prospect of the country and of the waters to the 
north and south. Looking one way Bedeque Bay is seen with 
all its attrai live surroundings, while beyon<l it lies North- 
umberland St rait with thecoast lini' of New Brunswick in the 
distance. In the other direction is Kichmond Bay with 
its seven islands, and be\-ond it the .Atlantic, while 
the irregular line of shore and the islands that dot the 
water make a fifing foreground for a truly entrancing

is a town of importaiue in 

the fish trade of tiie Island. The harbour is a haven of 
refuge for many (ijoueester fishing vessels whiih also outfit 
here with supplies and bait. Souris is a jK)rt of call for the 
tnail steamers from Pictou to the Magtlalen Islands. No 
finer drive could Ik* taken than that from Souris to Kortune 
Bay, the roac'. following the shore for a greater part of the 
distance. There is trout t". hing in F<>rtunt River, and in 
the channel running into the Bay m ,i trout of gcMnl size 
are to le caught. Prominent members of the theatrical 
profession have chosen Souris as a summer home, and it 
would be hard to select a more inviting s|xjt for a complete 
change and rest amid attractive surroundings and with 
opportunities for boating, bathing and fishing.

Bay. (k'orgctown, on Cardigan Bay, 
is beautifully sitiiatetl, with fine beaches 
anci one of the best hailxjurs in this 
part of Canada. There are good stores and -tome fine old 
residences, for in former years it was a place of greater 
relative commercial im )rtance thar at present. Boating 
and deep sea fishing nuiy be enjoyetl to the full, and at 
Morrison's Beach, Brudenel River and Sturgeon River 
there is good sea trout fishing. Motor boats are available 
at very reasonable rates. There are beautiful drives in 
every direction. Summer bungalows are available at a 
rental of S40 per season, and excellent boarding house 
accomnxxlation may be had. Georgetown is much in 
favour with many Ontario families who annually spend

A Million-Acre Farm 

Althoii^ ^mall in an.-a compared with the nthei prow 
inccs, and with a population considerably less than that of 
several of the leading Canadian cities, Prince Kdward 
Island is one of the most fertile parts of the Dominion, 
and its best economic province, inasmuch as it is one of 
the few that produces enough for its own needs and yet 
has a large surplus to export for the benefit of others. 
Kxperts have declared that the island is capable of sup- 
porting a population of over two millions. In its total area 
of 1,398,000 acres there is more tillable land than in any 
other portion of thv Maritime Provinces, and it is doubtfiil 
if any other part of Canada has in proportion so many well 
kept farms, so good a standard of farm buildings, and any 
better grade of live stock. Practically the whole of the 
island is under cultivati(m, with farms varying in size from 
fifty to several hundred acres. Mixed farming is practised 
for the most part, but of late years encouragement has 
been given to scientific dairying with the most gratifying 
results. Every farm seems well stocked with cattle, and 
the land tilled in an intelligent manner Knough beef 
cattle are raised to supply local needs and numbers are 
shipped lO the mainland. Many hogs ari rained and the 
Charlottetown packing house does a big business in the 
smoked and cured products. The farmers are also paying 
more attention to poultry raising, resulting in a large 
increase in the export of eggs. Most of the farms have 
their (juota of geese and thousands arc shipped alive in the 
autumn to foreign markets. Island mutton and lamb has 
a high reputation for flavour and there is considerable 
demand for export Indeed, recent statistics show thai 
Prince Edward Island far outdistances, per square mile, all the 
other provinces combined in ordinary farm live stock. The 

Island is famous for its horses. In recent years the silver fox 
industry has brought Prince Edward Island into prominence. 


The fisheries of Prince Edward Island, particularly those 
on the north coast, are exceedingly valuable, and this 
industry must always remain cjne of the standard resources; 
although the inclinations of the Islanders are so decidedK 
agricultural that the culture of the deep has not hitherto 
recei\ed from them the attention it deserves. Lobsters, 
oysters, clams, herring, cod, smelt, mackerel, hake, haddock 
are the principal vield. Their total value in past years has 
reached over 81,400,000 annually. 

The Island is celebrated for the excellence of its oysters, 
and the "Malpeque" is synonymous for everything that is 
succulent. With the better cultivation that is now being 
given to this important industry the outlook is promising 
for an increased production. 

The New C^ar Ferry .Service 

The Car Ferry S.S. " Prince Edward Island " operating 
between Cape Tormentine and Borden is a Tyne-built 
powerful steamer capable of carrying a ver\- heavy train, 
and with a hull designed to maintain continuous ommu- 
nication even in the most severe winter weather. It has 
proved a decided success. In the summer season there is 
a double daily ferry service, connection being maintained 
with the two express trains to and from Montreal. Produce 
is being shipped to its destination without breaking 
bulk, a refrigerator car service established for perishable 
goods, and a mail service is operated without interruption. 
The Island's desideratum has been achieved — it has 
become virtually part of the mainland.
